Blue Ribbon Panel unveils findings on logistical improvements to support Antarctic science
Date:7/24/2012

Today, the 12-member U.S. Antarctic Program Blue Ribbon Panel, commissioned by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) released their report, More and Better Science in Antarctica through Increased Logistical Effectiveness. The report is a comprehensive document based on several months of research, containing numerous specific recommendations for the U.S. logistics system for improved support of scientific research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

"The Antarctica Blue Ribbon Panel encourages us to take a hard look at how we support Antarctic science and to make the structural changes, however difficult in the current fiscal environment, that will allow us to do more science in the future," said NSF Director Subra Suresh. "I am grateful to the panel for committing to such a vital review, and I look forward to reviewing their recommendations for securing and improving U.S.-led research in Antarctica."

The report is the result of the second phase of a two-part independent review of the U.S. Antarctic Program, which is managed by NSF. A 2011 report issued by the National Research Council asserted that in the next few decades, enhancing science in the Antarctic region will require substantial organizational changes, broader geographical spread, increased international involvement, and a growth in the quantity, duration and networking of observations.

NSF manages and oversees funding to support the entire U.S. Antarctic Program. NSF directly supports research in astrophysics and geospace, organisms and ecosystems, earth science, glaciology, ocean and atmospheric sciences, and integrated system science. It also provides infrastructure and logistical support for all other U.S. federal agencies and other organizations conducting research on the continent, as well as partners internationally to leverage U.S. Antarctic research, infrastructure and logistics investments.
